In The Media » Jonathan Bullock MEP - If the EU does not get the decision it craves, it simply rips up the democratic rule book and starts again!
I read with interest about the recent vote to change the name of Macedonia.
This is a country not even in the EU yet but in typical EU fashion it is looking to tear up the democratic decision of its people!
To change the country's name, (and therefore move towards joining the EU and NATO), a majority in a referendum was required, on the basis of a 50 per cent turnout. The opposition therefore called for a boycott, and only 35 per cent turned out to vote.
Yet, despite this, the country's leaders want to go ahead anyway, in clear contravention of the rules.
This is what we have seen time after time with the EU, and indeed what we are seeing with our own referendum result here in the UK.
If the EU does not get the decision it craves, it simply rips up the democratic rule book and starts again!
